Understanding Mini Storage Sizes
A mini-storage unit is typically between 5×5 and 5×10 ft. – the approximate size of a smaller closet up to a larger walk-in wardrobe. These units work well for small items, such as furniture or boxes. You should first determine the items you’ll be storing. To ensure that furniture and large bulky items will fit, you should first measure the item.
Packing efficiently: Tips and Tricks
The art of packing can be difficult, especially when you are limited by space. To make stacking easier, choose boxes that are similar in size. Label the boxs with their contents and where they are located. Packing paper or bubble wrap can be used to protect fragile objects. Furniture can be dismantled to maximize space. Use moving blankets and sheets for each piece.
Climate Control: Is It Needed?
Think about climate-controlled containers if your items are susceptible to extremes in temperature or humidity. This includes electronics, wooden furnishings, and collectibles. These units keep your belongings safe from extreme temperature fluctuations and high humidity.
The security of your storage unit is important. Search for storage units with adequate lighting, cameras, and a gated entrance. Some facilities offer individual alarms to every unit. Choose a sturdy lock – many people prefer disc locks because they are secure.
Accessibility & Convenience
Opt for a facility offering convenient access hours. Some have 24/7 access while other facilities are restricted in their hours. Think about how frequently you need your items.
Mini storage units can be cheaper than large units. If you want to save some money, make sure that every space is used. You can save money by renting for longer periods or by paying several months up front.
Insurance is better than being sorry
You should always insure any items that you have stored. Many homeowner’s policy cover stored items, but you should check to see if they do and, if not, consider purchasing additional storage insurance.
Rotation: A New Art of Rotation
Practice rotation if your unit is used for seasonal items. As the seasons change, rotate the seasonal items in the unit. It’s a great way to keep everything organized in your unit and reduce the time it takes when changing out items.
Maintenance and Upkeep
You should regularly check the unit to look for dampness and signs of insects. Make a list of everything you store and check in periodically to see if it’s all still there.
